WST wishes to clarify that the Betfred World Championship will not be used to trial vaccine passports.
The tournament is part of the Events Research Programme. We are proud to be working with the UK Government on this programme, which will help not just sport, but other forms of indoor entertainment move a crucial step along the roadmap, with the use of scientific data.
As part of the safety protocols, it will be a requirement that all fans will undertake a test for Covid-19 prior to attending the venue. There will be a range of other safety protocols for fans to follow.
But our event is not a trial for vaccine passports, nor are there any questions about vaccines in the consent form which fans will complete before attending.
The event runs from April 17 to May 3 at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
